Isle of Arran Distillers

A dynamic new force in the Scotch Whisky market

Based in Lochranza; the most northerly village on the Island, the distillery opened in 1995 and uses only the traditional methods of distilling, with wooden washbacks and copper stills. The location offers perfect water for whisky production, cleansed by granite and softened by peat as it comes down from the mountain above. The atmosphere of sea breezes and clear mountain air matures the Arran Malt to perfection in earth floored warehouses.

This is not the first whisky making enterprise on the island. Before the tax on malt in 1725, when illicit distilling became common, farming clachans on the island had made their own pot-still whisky with a rustic method which was used throughout the Highlands. It was this illegal Arran whisky which the islanders carried in barrels down to the shore and loaded into boats, to be ferried across to the mainland.
